Miró & Giacometti: Miracles of Modern Art from a War-Torn World

Discover how Joan Miró was inspired by the landscape of a French coastal town to create one of the most ground breaking contributions to modern art.  Miró’s fabled Constellations series has been acclaimed as one of the most beautiful and poignant answers to the tragedy of the Second World War and inspired Alberto Giacometti to provide his own answer to the trauma of war. Giacometti’s unique bronze Grande Figure and Miró’s Femme et oiseaux are highlights of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale in London on 21 June.
